What is love? My parents, my husband and my 18 month old bless me with the utmost joy and happiness.
But, honestly, who do I have a standing date with Monday through Friday? Who makes me return slavishly to them over and over again. It’s not my dear baby, or anyone that can hug me back. It’s not even a person, but an inanimate object that spreads the joy and love like no other. I can’t stay away, even when warned of the consequences. You see, I have a standing date with my favorite “flash” shopping website. Yes, I mentioned this late last year, but now I am truly addicted with no sign of recovery in sight.
Each day at 11AM, I shovel organic broccoli and tomatoes into my child’s mouth. Okay, truthfully, I chop them up and scatter it on her lead-free plate, so she can feed herself because this will buy me some time to rush to my keyboard to log in to www.RueLala.com and www.Ideeli.com. They’ve got fresh top brands, which they discount like crazy for 24-48 hours. You better buy it or it will be gone forever. Prada, Gucci, Alexander McQueen! (I salivate over Mr. McQueen, but unlike Sarah Jessica, I can barely afford his t-shirts. But I love to “just look.”) Once the items sell out on the site, it’s curtains. You’re out stone cold, and if you didn’t commit and click on those Joe’s Jeans, then forget about it! The key is to log on exactly at 11am to chase the best deals.
